Stopped by local shop and they have a 2015 Fourtrax 4x4, semi auto, power steering. Can get for $5999, probably 6500 OTD unless I can bargain some more.

ANyone know if that is a good price?

Obviously being a Honda, they are durable, but anyone have experience with this particular model? What you like or dont like?

ATV will be used for trail riding and wood gather.

I've got a 2013 Foreman 4x4, PS, ES that I use around the farm and up at the hunt club. The only problem that I've had out of it is draining a battery.  I was riding it very slow around the property, usually with my toddler with me, and never got the revs up enough to charge the battery.    100% user error.





I replaced the pod light with a HID conversion. It really helped with throw and color at night.  Added a rear rack that I use for a Cabelas branded utility bag/seat addition.  My son, now older, rides back there between the pouches.  We mostly use it to pouches haul fencing tools and parts for repairs.  My wife has a 6x4 TrailGator that she uses, but the Foreman is easier for me to get around on.  We got a little Baby Bear wood stove for our basement last year and have started using the Foreman to haul up wood to burn.  It works well for that.  





I'm an easy owner for it.  It's mostly a utility/farm work vehicle for me.  After typing all of that, I do have occasions where the electric shift doesn't engage the first time.  Tap it a few more times and it works.  I haven't seen the need to have that checked out.

sweet machine for getting around 18.1 acre tracts.

Foreman's are an awesome machine.  One of the best bang-for-the-buck in the ATV industry.  I had a 2002 Foreman 450S that I treated like a sport quad more often than a work horse.  I put 6,000 miles on it in just a few short years on just 4 acres.  LOVE the Foreman's!  Honda's build quality is the best in the biz...so you really get your money's worth...

No 2014's in stock?

Dad was looking for new Honda Rancher a few years ago (~2011) and found a shop that had 2008s in stock yet.  Got a pretty damn good deal...

Not user error. That should never happen.  There is or was something else going on.

Might have been a dud battery. The shop replaced it and I haven't had any problems out of it since.
